Bangalore, September 17 2015: The CeBIT India 2015, IT expo returns to Bangalore from October 29 to 31, the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC). It is organized by Hannover Milano Fairs India Pvt Ltd, the Indian subsidiary company of the global joint venture of Deutsche Messe (Germany) and Fiera Milano Group (Italy).
Key industry partners this year include the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Manufacturers Association for Information Technology (MAIT), Consortium of Electronic Industries of Karnataka (CLIK), Federation of All India IT Association (FAIITA), and Federation of IT Dealers’ Associations-Karnataka (FITDAK).

One absentee this year is the Karnata state - which last year had made its annual show Bangalore ITE.Biz a a part of the CeBit event. This year it has decided to go it alone -- later this year.
Approximately 200+ MSMEs will take part in CeBIT India this year. With the support from Ministry of MSMEs and these Industry Associations, CeBIT hopes to boost the contribution of Indian MSMEs, currently at 8% of India’s GDP.
Says Mehul Lanvers-Shah, Managing Director, Hannover Milano Fairs India: “Last year CeBIT India served as a platform for over 120 Indian MSMEs who initated a large number of deals at the show. In 2015, through our association with key IT associations like CLIK, FITDAK, FAIITA, and COWE, we aim to provide a further impetus to the SME/MSME segment by connecting them with the global industry and bringing global opportunities in the Digital Economy to their doorstep.
